On June 9 a dedication ceremony was held in Pasadena for the nine families moving into the San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity Desiderio Homes development. The development, comprising nine single-family homes with detached garages, is arranged in bungalow court fashion with a common central courtyard flanked by single-story and two-story homes. Situated beneath the Colorado Street Bridge, the adjacent property is currently being developed by the City of Pasadena as a new city park.
The nine families participated in the construction of their new homes over the past two years as the entire development came to fruition. Three of the families have military veterans and amongst the nine families there are 24 children who will now have homes to call their own! The bungalow court arrangement provides a common front courtyard for the children to play.
